Board Of Directors

Board Of Directors

The ESRD Network Board of Directors oversees and manages the operations of each of the ESRD Network contracts with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”).  The ESRD Network Board of Directors assures that each contract is effectively managed in accordance with the contract requirements and ensures strict adherence to corporate compliance and financial management policies and procedures.

The Network Board of Directors may have up to 12 members, with at least two Patient Advisory Council members and two nephrologists serving as voting members. Other members are representative of the renal community. The members of the ESRD Network Board of Directors, other than the Chairs of each MRB and the Qsource CEO who serve ex officio, are nominated by the stakeholder community, and elected by a vote of the Network Coordinating Council members in the fall of each calendar year.

All ESRD Network Board of Directors nominations are provided in accordance with the Election Policy.  A slate is prepared of qualified ESRD Network Board of Directors, giving consideration to individual qualifications and appropriate geographical representation, for approval by the Board of Directors.  A ballot and an informational summary of all selected nominees is prepared and provided to each member of the Network Coordinating Councils not later than sixty (60) days prior to the beginning of the calendar year. The vote is conducted by mail/email.  The ESRD Network Board of Directors nominees receiving the most votes in each category are elected.  Approximately 33% of the Board of Directors membership is elected each year. All members of the ESRD Network Board of Directors serve for three (3) year terms of office.  Members may not serve more than two (2) consecutive three (3) year terms on the ESRD Network Division Board of Directors.

Network Board of Directors members are not compensated for their service.
